Wonderland Cellars – Sauvignon Blanc
Smells like tangy saliva. Tastes of grassy mouthwash. Bitter wheat, with an oily aftertaste. Unsprouted seeds. Crackled grain. A painfully sweet finish. Seriously, it reminds me of a fruit smoothie that tries too hard. Sure, it’s healthy, but holy shit it’s hard to swallow. Turmeric notes don’t hide the kiwi anomaly. I suggest watering it down to take the edge off. At least consider adding an ice cube. This wine holds a friendly veneer, with its quirky bubbles and inviting label. It does a decent job hiding its sharp teeth. The most passive-aggressive wine I’ve encountered.
